Frequently Asked Questions
Your Top Questions, Answered.
If you were injured because of someone else’s negligence, in a car accident, by a doctor or mesothelioma, you may have a personal injury case. Everyone’s case is different, so you should talk to a qualified personal injury, accident attorney as soon as possible. Oklahoma has a two (2) year statute of limitation period on most negligence cases. Whether you are badly injured, hurt or a loved one has died, Gilpin Law will talk to you and investigate at no charge. Your consultation is always free.
Everyone has to take proper or reasonable care when doing something. If they fail to act with reasonable care and another person(s) is injured as a result, then they were negligent. This applies to car or truck drivers, doctors, hospitals, product manufacturers, retailers or anyone or any corporation that has a responsibility to behave or conduct themselves in a certain or safe way. When someone is careless, reckless or acts outside the law and regulations, different statutes of limitation apply (time deadline) within which you must bring a lawsuit or settle the matter. Gilpin Law provides aggressive representation on their cases and does not let cases wait around. Contact an experienced injury lawyer as soon as possible. Someone could be found negligent if their mistakes injure others, cause harm, or the death of another.
Short answer – it depends on how quickly we get started, the Court and the parties in any lawsuit. Lawsuits can take as little as a few months to as long as a couple of years.

Don't take the first offer after a car wreck!
Just because you’ve been in a motor vehicle accident doesn’t mean you have to take whatever the insurance company first offers you. In fact, just that situation is not in your best interest. You may feel vulnerable because the medical bills are mounting up, you’re hurt and the insurance company is offering some money right away. And, of course, you want to get on with your life and get the interruption of an auto wreck out of the way. But, don’t fall for the first offer of money. It’s likely a trap.
